Y6 - Miss Stupples 2019 - 2020

Miss Stupples

Welcome

My name is Miss Stupples and I teach Year 6 along with Mr Ray, who supports our class. I have been a member of the teaching staff at Northway since 2011. Before this, I taught at another school in Sefton in both Infants and Upper Juniors. I also completed a Masters degree in Creative Education whilst teaching there. As well as teaching Year 6, I am also responsible for leading English across the school.  Northway has always been a special place to me as I attended this school myself! It has gone from strength to strength over the years and it has always had the children's well-being at the centre of every decision.

 

Daily Home Learning Plan 

So, it looks like school might be closed for a little while but we don’t want you to stop learning! It is really important that you carry on practising your basic skills and keep your creative juices flowing!  

Below is a list of ideas for things you can do when you should be in school. We will update our class page by 9:30am every Monday with some new ideas to keep you ticking over.  

Don’t forget to use your online learning log ins to keep your skills going. The links for some websites are below: 

Times Tables Rockstars https://play.ttrockstars.com/  

Top Marks Maths Games https://www.topmarks.co.uk/  

Bug Club (school code kqax)  https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/

Numberbots

Try logging into https://play.numbots.com/#/intro using your TTRockstars username and password. It is a new game to help you practise number bonds and improve your understanding of place value. It starts off very easy but it is important you work through each question so you can move onto challenges. You can earn rewards in a similar way to TTRockstars. 

Some children may have log ins for these accounts:

w.c. 30.3.20 This week’s inspiration:

Creative time: 

Look at the powerpoint below to explore Gaudi’s use of mosaic. Design your own mosaic pattern. You could cut up coloured paper or magazine pages and stick them onto paper or a small box, cardboard tube or bottle. If you do not have coloured paper, use coloured pens or pencils to draw the tile pieces. If you made a model last week, maybe you could decorate that using mosaic.

Music Chill time:

This half term we have been listening to the music of Texas. You can download the Powerpoint about them below to find out more. This week, the song to find and listen to is 'In Demand'.

Science:

 Are some changes irreversible?

Hopefully last week you learnt that dissolving is a reversible change. As the water evaporated, salt crystals should have formed in your lid. If you look closely you should see that they have a square shape. Draw them or stick a photograph into your book. Now watch the powerpoint presentation below on reversible and irreversible changes. If you have someone to help you, maybe you could bake a cake and notice the irreversible changes that take place. You can share the cake with your family!

History/Geography:

Now is a great time to recap knowledge we have learnt during our Geography and History lessons!  Use the Liverpool Knowledge Mat to help you answer the questions attached below. Use this to create a poster or fact page to share with your family.

Mindfulness challenge:

As we continue to spend a lot of time at home, it is important to find ways to be calm and relaxed; we call this mindfulness. Follow the link below to listen to a 'mindfulness breathing exercise'.
